New valley gutter


Has anyone got a really good way of doing a Valley gutter or is it just best the stay away.

I'm not too keen on the wide steel ones I have seen, agree easy to clean Weir at end etc but they rust quick enough.
I have 6" storm flow plastic on buildings and like it, 4" down pipes set gutter at a fall so not full of sediment. (Seen steels set flat and full of sediment)
Debating if a 6" deepflow will manage, but not be ideal to clean out so thought about letting one roof go onto the other so it's just like a standard gutter?
Or even make sheds 2 heights and just have 2 standard gutters? But ones gutter will basically be inside the other shed
Sheds will be 90ft long a 30ft and 60ft span
A wide steel valley is the best option IMO. Easy to clean & unlikey to overflow into the shed, which could be an issue with the deepflow

Got a galv one put in 27 years ago has just started to get rust holes, Nowt lasts for ever


I have the 30ft spans which want moving, I was thinking the value would be so little to sell but still a decent workshop for me.
Then I need a grain store and it lends well to being alongside workshop, no point leaving a silly gap and paying for 2 walls

The biggest thing with gutters, is cleaning them,
i dismantle buildings and find most have never been cleaned, have even found trees growing in them, !!
Crappy design in some cases.

I saw a valley on an industrial building the other day, good width really, couple of foot or more, BUT the overhangs made it hard to get down the valley I reckoned... Crap design!

Recently was working next to a sizeable grain store, approx 100 x 80,
Heavy down pour, with strong winds,
Grains store only had 6 in plastic gutter, as the water poured over the gutter, the wind was blowing it back under the facia,
Very bad design, or lacking design


Was often thinking about this, how about 8” stormflo plastic gutter. Keep the timber on one shed back 18” from the end of the sheet. Plenty room now if you want to access it after.

brush it out once a a year

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
